Split Series Vol. One (Bone) consists of 11 tracks, the first five by After The Fight, the second six by HighBall. Both bands do the emo-punk thing with enough spastic energy and piledriving riffs worthy of any faux hawk-laden mosh pit. But while After The Fight’s rhythm section hit harder, Highball’s hit faster, their lead vocals are sweeter, and their songs focus more on melody – in a Blue Meanies/Simple Plan/Rancid kinda way.

Bone Split Series Volume 1, Bone Records. As I’ve mentioned in my other reviews of After The Fight including volume 2 of this series of splits, this is a great band that seems to have a grasp on what punk music is supposed to sound like. If you dig bands like Face to Face and MXPX then After The Fight is a must have for your collections. These guys just seem to keep pumping out good material after good material and are definitely someone to keep your eyes on. The other side of this disc showcases the pop punk stylings of a band called Highball. This is yet another great band that seems to get it. They play pop punk unlike most bands these days, they seem to be more influenced by Screeching Weasel than The Starting Line. Their side of this split brings raw energy and a lot of attitude. This is yet another great split from Bone Records and worth checking out. (JK) - All Ages Zine

Bio

HighBall is a power rock with punk influences band based out of Chicago. Formed in October 1999, the trio started out in the depths of a Chicago basement. HighBall quickly began creating original songs containing lyrics from everyday life, adventures, relationships and the daily 9 to 5 grind. HighBall knew they had an edge to their music often being compared to sounds of local Chicago acts such as The Ramones, Screeching Weasel and Green Day. HighBall continues redefining rock music and has an onstage energy and presence that is matched only by their quick and punchy power chord sound - the style of music to which great rock legends owe their success.
